Hunt & Gather showcases contemporary international art featured in galleries and media across the globe. Its striking collection of surrealism, pop art, illustration, collage, graphic design and mixed media represents many of the poses struck by today's most boundary-pushing artists. Aspects of the collection are dark, at times macabre, but have their compliment of arrestingly playful pieces.
